Volumes have been written on the essence of Parisian chic, an effortless pulled-together state that is as much lifestyle as look. Volumes aside, the heart of French beauty can be expressed in two words: femininity and confidence. Know what you have, embrace your quirks, and revel in being a woman.
How to get the look? First, observe the simple maxim of wearing only what you really look and feel good in. Choose a basic outfit that plays up your best traits: a DVF wrap dress or Marc Jacobs shirtdress to emphasize a slim waist, or sleek Theory trousers or cropped Rag & Bone jeans to highlight hips and legs. Once these foundations are laid, personal style is free to reign: march to the beat of your own drummer, and style will be sure to follow.
